A very creepy occurrence happened a few weeks back but I’ll start off with introducing myself a little. I am 16, female and my boyfriend is 19 and we are living in the UK.
A few weeks back I was staying in Norfolk visiting family with my mum, brother and boyfriend. My nan, who I was visiting, lives in a small housing estate surrounded by deep creepy forests. One evening me and my boyfriend got quite bored as there is not really much to do around that area so we decided to take a walk in one of the forests not expecting to discover what we did…
We walked around the housing estate until we eventually came across an entrance to one of the forests and without hesitating, we walked through, having to duck underneath the bushes.
We stood there and examined the area while we rolled a fag. It was quite open with some bushy areas and a lot of really tall trees in fact, it didn’t really seem creepy at all at this point, it was just beginning to get dark so it was still slightly light.
We walked around the forest smoking our fags just talking about random shit until it actually did get dark but it still didn’t seem creepy.
We carried on walking until we came across a bushy area with a very small opening, barely noticeable in fact and of course curiosity got the better of us and we decided to go and explore..yeah great idea I know, exploring a deep creepy forest that I’d never been to before at night…
But nevertheless, we walked through this little opening anyway having to avoid branches, stinging nettles and thorn bushes but for some reason we carried on anyway.
After following this trail for about 5 minutes we came across what looked like a campsite.
“What the fuck is that?” I wondered so we walked over to investigate.
There was a large old curtain stretched across and each corner was tied to a tree however, on top of the curtain there was a pile of dried up leaves which suggested no one had been there for a couple of days but it didn’t look abandoned..
There was also a big white sheet that was tied up to the trees to create a bit more shelter.
Inside we found a huge amount of pillows, duvets and cushions as if someone had been staying here for quite a while. There was also a girls bag which consisted of a half full can of deodorant, and a load of girls clothes. (Yes we are very curious and it didn’t look like anyone was around so we had a look inside the bag) Inside the shelter there was also girls clothes scattered all around the camp as if they had been staying there for quite a long time and a torch which still worked, which was just sat on the duvet. Beside this sheltered area was a large blue and white bike which had a plastic bag wrapped around the seat. At this point we just assumed that it was a squatter camping out in the woods and nothing suspicious at all, we are not very easily creeped out people at all and pretty chilled out so we didn’t really think much of it. We carried on walking for a bit and we next came across an old mossy garden chair and a random fold out bed with a compartment underneath. Again being the nosey people we are my boyfriend lifted up the mattress which was surprisingly very heavy, it made a horrible piercingly loud creak and slammed back down so we just decided to leave it. Now by this point, it was practically pitch black but we didn’t want to go back so we just continued walking. We were probably only walking for another 2 minutes before ending up at a suspicious looking pit of dirt, as if it had recently been filled in. My boyfriend decided it would be a good idea to try and dig it up a little with a stone he found nearby as that is all he had, yeah again, great idea. So he began digging not really knowing what we were expecting to find, if anything. After digging for quite a while, he pulled out what looked like a bit of a tattered old scarf or jumper, this is when we didn’t feel quite right, as if we really shouldn’t be there.. I stood around watching out into the forest not able to see much really Suddenly, We heard that horrible creaking from the fold out bed and shivers ran up my spine. I froze in shock and looked at my boyfriend who had also stopped what he was doing. Now like I mentioned, I hardly ever feel creeped out but I suddenly got a really bad feeling about this, a really weird vibe..I felt really sick and as if we were being watched and wanted to get the fuck out of there!
We decided that it was time to nope it out of there so we walked further on into the bushes trying to find a way out, I still felt like we were being followed and felt really creeped out which worried me even more as I’m not easily scared.
We carried on walking and came across an old rusty shovel just propped up against a tree.. It was quite some distance away from the loose mud however my boyfriend really wanted to go back with this shovel and for some reason, we did…
Once we were back there he began to dig as I held his phone that we were using as a torch, I was constantly looking around still feeling really uncomfortable, however all I could see was faint silhouettes of the bushes and trees in the darkness.
I was convincing him that we should go as I really felt like we weren’t alone… And I wanted to listen to my gut feeling which was telling me to get the fuck out of there now!
We heard twigs snapping and what sounded like footsteps and that’s when we decided to leave…
He threw the shovel onto the floor and we ran through these bushes jumping through the nettles, all we gave a shit about was getting out of there as soon as possible!
I don’t think I have ever ran so quickly trying to avoid the low branches and after what seemed like hours we eventually jumped through the bush into the open area of trees again.
We carried on running for a little bit and saw a dog walker so we felt as if we were safe and reassured.
We continued to walk through the woods talking about what had just happened, thinking it was over but we came across a tree and spray painted Onto it was ‘I set my friend on fire’ with the paint dripping down…this was just fucked up. We came across many more trees which also had eerie things sprayed on them such as ‘do you still want to kiss me in the rain’ and a lot of them said ‘I will always love you’ and ‘kiss me’. This may not have been related to the previous experience however it was very suspicious and just seemed strange…
We decided to get the fuck out of that place and never go back again.
When we got home we discovered a photo on my boyfriends phone which we never took…
It looked like a very old frame of an armchair, it was so rusty and covered in moss. And in the background there is what looks like an alien kind of shaped figure now, neither me nor my boyfriend even remember seeing this armchair, let alone taking a photo of it, so this was very creepy…(I will try and send the picture as an attachment) We decided to not think or talk about what happened again but decided to share this with you. It made me shiver just writing and remembering what happened as it was one of the worst experiences and I have never felt like that before.
